Agreed WV. We aren't going to sign Bell because there is no way the FO is going to match 1.75 Million for a year. No way. Fargas isn't really an "upgrade", but he could slide into Bell's role.

Agreed........but he could be the kind of back that has a good year with a change of scenery.

I like Fargas. I've watched ALOT of Raider games out here, over the past few years, and one thing I will give this guy, he comes to play, every game. Not to mention, playing in the AFC West, against designed run defenses like San Diego, and Denver, he earned every yard he got. I like this idea.

Exactly. Can you imagine the culture in Oakland, and how much more positive the environment would be for him? If he came to play every day in that scenario, well I like it...

It's about the money. We can get the same talent in Fargas, that we have in Bell for cheaper. It's a good move. Hopefully in this year's Superbowl, he'll put the right shoes on! LOL @ Bell

Good insurance in case we lose Bell. Probably a more polished back that we could rely on, rather than bringing in a rookie at that position.

Even though he just turned 30, Fargas still has a lot of tread on the tires. He hasn't really been the feature back for the Raiders. Even in his 1000 yard season, he only started seven games. As others have stated a change of scenery and a MUCH better offensive line could be beneficial for him. He's been accustomed to splitting caries (averaging 13.3 carries per game over the last 4 years), so he would be accustomed that role in New Orleans if he signs. I say pull the trigger.

I agree with all that think he is a equal caliber replacement for Bell and will come much cheaper. Good move if we pull it.
